Often in error, never in doubt

Michael Peach

Often in error, never in doubt:
Such are most doctors – medical technicians;
The new gods we mortals must propitiate
Lest by mistake, or worse, they do us harm.
For health is business; idollartry!
Where are the healers? Oh, by God, I swear
There’s sacred human creativity
And there’s profane Promethean invention.

25 February 1997
